I will not lose another person I love. I will not let history repeat itself.

Vincent waited lifetimes to find me, but in an instant our future together was shattered. He was betrayed by someone we both called a friend, and I lost him. Now our enemy is determined to rule over France’s immortals, and willing to wage a war to get what they want.

It shouldn’t be possible, none of it should be, but this is my reality. I know Vincent is somewhere out there, I know he’s not completely gone, and I will do anything to save him.

After what we’ve already fought to achieve, a life without Vincent is unimaginable. He once swore to avoid dying—to go against his nature and forsake sacrificing himself for others—so that we could be together. How can I not risk everything to bring my love back to me?

Here Are My Thoughts

Plot

If I Should Die is the conclusion to the Revenants trilogy. I have been following this series since Until I Die, and it has not let me down. Amy Plum is a magnificent writer, and I am sad to see the series end. If I Should Die is everything I thought it would be, and more. It was filled to the brim with action and fighting. There was never a dull moment in this novel. Something was always going on, something being discovered, someone fighting.

The only thing that I can think of about this novel that I didn’t enjoy was that things played out like I thought they would. After the ending of the second novel, I was able to guess major plot points of this novel. This was disappointing because there wasn’t really anything that I wasn’t expecting. The  plot was fairly predictable throughout the entire novel.

Leading Lady

Kate really grew as a character in this novel. She was definitely the strong heroine that was needed during this installment. She stopped letting people fight battles for her and fought them herself. She really matured over the course of the series.

Leading Male

Vincent was as amazing as he always was. He really stepped into the role of a leader in this novel although he faced some hardships along the way. He and Kate made a magnificent pair of strong characters.

Conclusion

Although If I Should Die pales in comparison to the other novels in this series, it wasn’t too bad. I was able to get through it, what with its action-packed plot. Even though the events were predictable, Amy Plum still managed to create a wonderful ending to the Revenants series that successfully tied up all lose ends.
